Thanks Marcy. Sounds like that version would be fowl!

Actually, I do remember once trying to emulate a goose call when trying to work on a verion of 'Rocking Goose'. Variations on 1 blow worked quite well...

Welcome back Harmless.

You always look like you've stolen into either your boss's office or a stationery cupboard to record these vids.

Heh, thanks Andy, that's actually not far from the truth! I still don't have my own space to practice and this one was recorded just after finishing vacuuming before my in-laws were due to arrive. Actually, vacuuming is a decent time for me to practice because my wailings are disguised by the noise of the vacuum and my playing is less inhibited. So I worked my way up to the front door, plonked the phone down in a corner, and recorded a take. Sometimes I find that if I don't do something spontaneously, it doesn't get done at all.

I'd also like to pay tribute to the Snickelfritz Band version at some point. I think the Seydel Big 6 would be good for this, as with the right hand cupping you can get quite nice trumpet like sounds.

Thanks

I did have a great time away, at a beach on the South Coast of New South Wales.

Unfortunately, I had a few mouth ulcers so the last vid was recorded after about five days off the harp.

I tried to load a couple of photos to show the area, but the size seemed to be an issue. I couldn't get them any smaller

Welcome back Harmless.

You always look like you've stolen into either your boss's office or a stationery cupboard to record these vids.

And you always seem to have fun on the harp.

Rochdale Coconut Dance

Old folk tune on a Hohner Marine Band in key of A, played first position.

Here's a tune my brother's Morris Dancing Troup use, the Rochdale Coconut Dance.

It has a strange providence, but seems to be prevalent in the English Morris Dancing tradition.

Andy: Fairport convention is one of the bands that got me into folk rock, what a great bunch of musicians! I think they are one of the oldest, still playing band in the world? I remember they did a concert in Bergen a few years ago when I lived there. Do you know if they are still playing? Good job one the song! Have you tried playing with a metronome? I have found that on songs that are repetive on their own can really get a new life if you have a beat to work around.

I have no idea if Fairport Convention are still going, but as everyone else is reforming, who knows.

I am getting used to playing with a metronome, but yet to such a level as to not be distracted by it.

Good work from Andy there.

Although I got somewhat sidetracked since this started, I haven't forgotten about it. In fact, I even bought a pair of 'cheater spoons' for accompaniment, though after some initial attempts I realised that they are harder to play than one might think, especially if you're playing harp simultaneously.

So I will hopefully come back to this at some point...


In the meantime, here's a cheeky double entry of my mash up medley 'Reel Chicken in the Straw'... ;)

What a fun version, and great chicken sounds too. Those two tunes seem to be a good medly. Maybe now throw in "Ducks on the Mill Pond." or "The Blue Goose."

Well, maybe others feel like me and are reluctant to post a recording after Sarge has set the bar so high, but someone has to be brave. Today, that person is myself... :)

I started practicing Turkey in the Straw a couple of months ago (up to a minute a day, no less :) ), and bits of this tune kept coming up inadvertently (didn't know what it was called at that time).

Usual disclaimers apply; I haven't had much time to practice or record better takes, but I figure getting a rough and ready contribution in is better than no contribution at all. I think this has potential to be a pretty funky version.

Fantastic work, Sarge. I'm playing catchup on the forum after an unfortunate hiatus and was late in seeing your entry here.

i remember hearing this tune first on old cartoons I watched as a child, however I never knew what it was called. Good stuff.

I have come to realize that as well, many years ago I ordered two promaster from Brendan Power in G and D with a book with tunes for the paddy tuning, but sadly I have lost them both. Last christmas I got a paddified Seydel Session in D from my girlfriend, but I quickly came to realize that one in G would have been better. I have seen easttop selling them so I am considering getting another G from them in the future.

The sampler looks like tons of fun! Unfortunately it's way out of my bugdet!

I will make sure to check out your contributions over there! Is your ukes tuned in different intervalls between the strings or at higher/lower variations of the same tuning?

Hey, maybe you can help me with something Tootler? I am forever searching for cool jigs to play on the harmonica. Do you know of any? Especially ones I can use the G harmonica to play which doesn't utilize the 6th (E) degree of the scale in the bottom octave. If the tune can be played on a D harmonica, it's alright because I have a paddified D harp.

At the moment I am working on Carraroe, Martin Hayes has a beautiful rendition of it on on the "Live from Seattle" album on Spotify. It has some difficult jumps which makes it a challenge

I'll have a look at the jigs I have but most of them go down to D and need that E.

A Paddy Richter tuned G harp I find more necessary than a Paddy Richter in D because many tunes in G go down to D. I recently got a Seydel Sampler in G/D which covers most fiddle tunes in those two keys and their related modes. The "G row" goes down to the low G of a fiddle but the D doesn't go quite so low. You can order customised ones from Seydel and I am tempted to get one with a standard G side and a D side going down to low A. That would pretty much cover the the whole range of fiddle tunes. Unfortunately the customised ones are nearly double the price of the standard ones so I will have to wait a while.
